LIVE guest co-host Lisa Rinna shocked Ryan Seacrest as she ditched the cue cards during the segment amid Kelly Ripa's absence from the show.
On August 10th, actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, 39, appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan to promote her most recent project.
The Surface actress said: "I just finished a movie in Northern Ireland, Belfast. Filmed a little bit in Italy.
"That was a real treat for me. To be in Venice, one of my favorite cities as well. So much art and culture."
Gugu continued: "There are so many things now open. And it's been a really great cultural experience.
"To take in the food and culture, and the history."
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star seemed swooned by Gugu's appearance and blurted out: "You're so gorgeous! I'm just gagged by it!"
The Morning Show actress blushed as Lisa, 59, added: "I mean, seriously! I have to say that out loud!"
Ryan, 47, moved towards the camera and asked: "Is that in the cue cards? It's not in my notes."
Lisa continued: "I'm rarely speechless. And you are just stunning. Your energy is so beautiful!
